Went out for the first time today in quite a few months as you may have noticed. Not sure wether to get the shots online or not because alot of them are frankly rubbish owing to the dismal weather..And besides, if I make them public, it may betray me for "Other Matters".. :roll: :lol: 8)

Anywhoo..My best shot was this one here:



Taken at a lineside spot near the station at Ashchurch for Tewkesbury. I loved the jaunty angle and I fell in love...with a sign. Yes, a sign.. :roll: :wink: All I've done in so far as editing was to give it a Sepia tone and a little Fill light.

And this one from the archives..



Now, who was it who liked this shot alot..?? :?

Sam.

Unless I can be severely persuaded Mike, I'm afraid it will remain undisclosed. :wink: :roll:

Glad you still like it also, Mike! :)

So ... Sam is fearful of being betrayed over "Other Matters," and he is in love with a sign.

This has to be a new and fascinating thread... Not sure where it should be placed. Suggestions, anyone :?: :wink:

By the way, Sam - I miss the regular railfan photos :(

I do apologise, Tim. I try and get out as best I can, but when I do, I haven't had a computer to put them on to, or an internet that worked to upload them, but now I have my laptop going all swish, I'll try and get out more! :) This combined with work naturally and I know I have my days off, but when you work alongside trains 5 days a week you want to avoid them at all costs at any other time! (Except when it's a special move or a railtour naturally.. :wink: )

Still not telling.. :roll: :lol:

Absolvo te, Sam :!: (You are forgiven :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: ) So long as you are enjoying your job and your "Other Matters" that's all that really matters :!: :wink:

(Stiil, a trip or two to the country with a camera..... :twisted: )

I know the feeling Sam, got a free bus pass as i drive them but i never use them, sick of them after driving all day, anyhow there never on time :roll: .
Just wondering, i think you got a tad house bound, i mean your in Love with a sign and you got other matters you cant discuss. You aint been testing the camera through your house windows have you :D :D .
By the way i think if your in love with a sign thats your buissness just let us all know the wedding date :D :D

Here's another one for you Mike..

This one is located just west of Buckenham in East Anglia:


Funny thing: When I visited on this day, the station only gets one train each direction all day and when 6 people, including me got off the train, the guard was overheard to say "Blimey! I've never seen so many people get off here!".. :lol: :lol: :lol:

ps: renamed the thread just to ease things. :wink:

Another good shot that I like a lot :!: (I was one of the others that was well pleased with the "archive" shot).
I've got a few of one of the crossings on the Devon main line, just East of Dawlish. I wonder if it would be OK to post them here :?:
You could always re-title the thread by adding (and a few from other members :!: :!: )

Thats a valid point Jeff. Duely ammended. :)

Thought you'd like it. I prefer these kind of places for photography than stations if I can.

Lovely pics Sam, hadn't seen this thread before.
I'll have to see what I can find here in WA in the way of crossings.

Just thought I'd post a more detailed shot of the actual crossing on the running lines..


They certainly make a change to your usual wooden crossing.

I like the way they have painted the stile yellow.
Looks like you had grand weather for it.

The Devon coast Line runs along the banks of the river Exe before entering Dawlish.
There is a foot crossing to gain acess to the "beach", but the track runs high above the road.
Here's a shot of the entry point, where you can see the height difference (remember Moira is only 4ft 11.5" tall):-


Then it's up a set of steps:-


And finally the crossing, which I thought was a bit tatty :!: -

Lovely pictures Jeff of one of my favourite parts of the world - I've done a bit of sailing up the Exe estuary.

In the first picture however, in the top right hand corner, there is a bridge which if I am correct is the M5. This being so I know exactly where outside Exeter this is and what horrifies me is that by the time the westbound expesses reach here they are going at a fair lick. The crossing dosn't look very child friendly - gulp! What happened to footbridges and fences?

Les

Nice pics Jeff, how did a woman like that end up with a bloke like you :D :D :D :D , she wear glass's :D :D , sorry joking.
I notice in one pic the walk way across the track is not lineing up with each other, is this done on purpose or have they moved over time. Either way be easy to trip over i should think, also where is the gate or even some way of given a warning a train is coming :shock: .
